The self-assessment checklist in Is My Evaluation Practice Culturally Responsive? focuses on four components (p. 1):
- Cultural competency of the evaluators and the evaluation process
- Diversity as related to various grantee attributes
- Inclusion of members of the priority community in the evaluation process
- Equitable outcomes for the participants
The instrument offers evaluators a tool to assess “the degree to which their current practice incorporates the principles and methods for conducting evaluation” through a lens of cultural competence and racial equity (p. 3). Sections of the checklist assess the cultural competency of the evaluator, cultural competence of evaluation practices, and applying the lens to process evaluation and outcome evaluation.
